Inquiry into Glastir

Glastir: Terms of Reference

The Environment and Sustainability Committee undertook an inquiry on the Welsh Government’s agri-environment scheme, Glastir.

The purpose of the inquiry was to:

  • to assess the progress made by the Welsh Government on the delivery of the scheme;
  • to gather stakeholder views on the scheme and how it could be improved;
  • to make recommendations to the Welsh Government on the delivery of the scheme.

The Committee considered:

  • what progress had been made by the Welsh Government to implement the recommendations made by the Rees Roberts independent review of Glastir and whether these have been effective?
  • what progress has been made by the Welsh Government to implement the recommendations made in the ‘Working Smarter’ report, as it relates to Glastir?
  • whether there remain any barriers to entry to the scheme for the industry and how these could be addressed?
  • what the views of stakeholders are on the different elements of the scheme?
  • the funding arrangements for the scheme and in particular:

- whether there is sufficient flexibility between the funding of different elements of the scheme?

- whether the costings for different options available under the All Wales Element and Targeted Element are reflective of market conditions?

- the funding available for farmers in less favoured areas entering the scheme.
